For the new school year of 2017 Belvidere North has many new additions to the teachers and staff throughout the building. This year BNHS has a total of eleven new teachers and staff to welcome into the building. Our new dean of students, Mrs. Bounthong,  is looking forward to this school year, “I Look forward to getting familiar with high school students.” Mrs. Bounthong recently taught english at Eisenhower Middle School and said, “I am looking for the students of BNHS to be more engaged and on time to class this year.”
